The Garden Collection by H&M Lookbook

The Garden Collection by H&M Lookbook

Just a friendly reminder that The Garden Collection by H&M, the company's first fully-sustainable line, officially launches tomorrow March 25 in H&M stores nationwide. Coinciding with Earth Day initiatives, this is H&M's first collection made entirely from environmentally adapted materials (including organic cotton, organic linen and recycled polyester), and is made up of 80 items and 10 accessories all under $60. Amazing! I'm definitely going to check it out tomorrow, hopefully I can score the red rose dress and a couple other pieces. More eye candy after the jump where you'll find the complete lookbook! Enjoy…

The Look for Less: Belle by Sigerson Morrison Strappy Lattice Espadrille Wedges



Belle by Sigerson Morrison at ShopStyle


These Belle by Sigerson Morrison Strappy Lattice espadrille wedges sell for $240 at Net-a-Porter.com. They look a lot like the Jimmy Choo 'Keenan' Caged Sandal, turned into an espadrille wedge.



Steve Madden at ShopStyle


Save some cash with the Exsell wedge sandal from Steve Madden, available in black snake, natural snake or red snake for $169.95 at stevemadden.com. At that price, you might be better off waiting for the Sigerson Morrison sandals to just go on sale, but that's just me!

You can also sign up for Shop It To Me's personalized sale alerts so you'll know when the 'Exsell'—or any other sandal you love—goes on sale.
